Intel have just released another wave of processors for both their mobile and desktop lines, padding out the i3/i5/i7 series with more processors featuring the HD4000+ integrated graphics.
The Celeron and Pentium lines also got a few more processors, and all of the lines are getting mobile CPUs with the -U and -Y suffix, showing off impressively low thermal design power(TDP)...
Of note in the release is that, as of Haswell, all Core i3 processors now support AES instructions, and use the HD 4000+ series of onboard graphics. Combined with that, the i3-43XX series is using a 4MB L3 cache, along with HD 4600 graphics.
On the mobile side, the -U and -Y lines were fleshed out; both sets feature the System on a Chip architecture, with 2 cores - Hyperthreading is also enabled for the Core iX series.
The -U CPUs feature the HD 4400 graphics, which runs at 1100MHz, and range from the 1.4GHz Celeron 2955U all the way up to the Core i7-4600U, running at 2.1GHZ with 3.3GHZ Turbo. All of the -U line runs at just 15W TDP, making them very light for mobile devices.
Not as light as the -Y range however, which runs at a paltry 11.5W. To compensate, the onboard graphics is only an 850MHz HD 4200, with processor speeds ranging from the Pentium 3560Y at 1.2GHz, to the Core i7-4610Y at 1.7GHz (2.9GHz Turbo).
Preliminary pricing puts the -U and -Y lines at a fairly expensive price point, with the cheapest offering (the Celeron 2955U) going for $132; the Core i5-4300Y is priced at $304, a hefty sum. Here's the full list of the released processors:
Xeon E3-1220L v3
Phew, there we go. What do you make of these, any take your fancy?
